The Air Quality Index (AQI) in Mumbai improved on Saturday, November 28, due to the aftereffects of Cyclone Nivar.

As per reports, on Saturday, the AQI for Mumbai was 125, according to the System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research. Earlier on Thursday, November 26, the AQI was 252 which falls under the poor category. Moreover, the day before, the city witnessed an AQI of 201 which was calculated from an average of 10 locations in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR).

Among the 10 locations System of Air Quality Weather Forecasting and Research monitored, the most polluted was Mazgaon with an AQI of 242. On the other hand, the least polluted was Bhandup with an AQI of 65.

The AQI values at or below 100 are generally thought of as satisfactory. However, when AQI values are above 100, air quality is unhealthy. From 201 to 300, the air is judged to be very unhealthy; children, asthmatics and people with heart or lung conditions should avoid the outdoors and all others should reduce their outdoors exertion. On the other hand, when the AQI exceeds 300, it is “hazardous” for everyone to venture outdoors.

Meanwhile, the Cyclone Warning Division of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had earlier issued a preliminary report on the very severe cyclonic storm Nivar over the Bay of Bengal from November 22 to 27. Moreover, the Cyclone Nivar which was a tropical cyclone has severely impacted the major portions of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
